Our seminars acknowledge and award the Top Student in each class. If the seminar is organised as an in-house seminar, the Top Student can come from the FIDI company or any of the in-house customer’s employees.

In order to have a good variety of students in each FIDI seminar, the number of students per company  is subject to the following rules:

  • A maximum of 2 students from the same company.
  • Up to 3 students if at least 2 of them work in different company locations.
  • For more than 3 students you must contact the FIDI office who will review each request on a case by case. The final decision will be based on the status of registrations as well as the geographical and company distribution of the students already registered to attend the course.
  • For in-house seminars (where FIDI and company/association employees are combined), registrations follows the above rules unless otherwise specified.
